Hollywood Live-Action "Akira" Halted?
On Akira progress, director Collet-Serra told Collider “No, no. There’s nothing.”
It seems like the on-again, off-again efforts to produce a live-action Hollywood version of Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira might be off again. After last summer's report that Dante Harper, the uncredited writer on the first draft of the movie adapting Hiroshi Sakurazaka's All You Need is Kill into what ultimately became Edge Of Tomorrow, was working with Warner Bros, Appian Way, Mad Chance and director Jaume Collet-Serra, Collider is now hearing from Collet-Serra that there's no movement on the project.
On Akira progress, Collet-Serra told the site, “No, no. There’s nothing.” And, on whether there's hope for progress, he was prompt to respond “it’s a Warner Bros. question.”
